“Don't Worry, Be Happy.”

ProSomething for everyone, sun sand & relaxation

ConsSome hassle, a lot of poverty.

Jamaica, the very word conjures up a picture of lush tropical beaches, sun-filled days and romantic nights as the sun goes down in a dramatic blaze of colour. Yet there is far more to the island than just beaches and scenery. I went there in the mid 1990's but my memory of that two-week holiday...

ConsSafety, harassment.

This is not about the comforts of staying in an all-inclusive resort that could be in any exotic part of the world. When I visited Jamaica I stayed in people's homes or budget accommodation and saw a different side of Jamaica than normal. Jamaica is a truly beautiful island in the Caribbean Sea...

Jamaica, one of the most alluring of the Caribbean islands, lives as a tourist brochure cliché of tropical scenery and shimmering beaches. Its sunsets provide the backdrop for many a romantic picture and the reported laid back nature of the locals with a ready smile and quick wit portray a happy...

When we arrived at the airport in Jamaica the first thing that annoyed me was the way the porters were demanding at least 2 US dollars to take your luggage a matter of a couple of hundred yards to your bus. I'd heard before I went that the hassle was tremendous, however, once we arrived at...

Jamaica.... The name conjoures up images of long lazy days on the beach cocktail in hand, smiling friendly locals with an easygoing carefree attitude..... Think again. I give you Ocho Rios..... The island IS beautiful. The scenery and beaches are stunning. The hotels are (from what I saw)...

I went to jamaica about four years ago, and I stayed in Ochios Rios. I really enjoyed meeting the local people and the atmosphere was so friendly and inviting, and the food was to die for! There is so many places to go in jamaica and so many hidden beaches and coves you couldn't get bored here...

“Jamaican Experience”

published 12/02/2008

ProSo much to do and see, wonderful people and beauty

ConsNone whatsoever

I adore Jamaica and who wouldn't. If people tell you not to leave your complex then I suggest you laugh in their face. We stayed at a 5 star complex in a remote area where the cattle roamed the streets and the locals sat along the roadside under their oil filled street lights. There was one shack...

ConsLong flight, and you have to come home again ;-(

I have stayed at the Beaches resort in Negril for the third time, with my family, and if you are looking for relaxation, touring or general chill out then this has it all. Once again, upon arrival at the airport, you have all the boring customs to go through, and then you are taken to your bus to...

I've just come back from a holiday in Jamaica with my husband, daughter and son-in-law, a holiday I'll never forget. We stayed at " Starfish Trewlawny " in Falmouth, where all inclusive means just that. The food was fantastic, with so much choice. Each night was a different theme - for example...
